To build a meditative or Zen experience while creating a collective piece of art. To symbolize individual pieces coming together as a whole.
- Start by showing students examples of mandalas, and ask them to describe the similarities and differences between them. Share information about mandalas as an artform.
- Tell students they will be making mandalas collaboratively by passing their artwork around and adding to each other’s mandalas.
- Making the Mandala:
- Each student gets a square piece of paper and then draws a small circle in the center of the paper.
- Then they pass the paper to their right, and the next student will have 3 minutes to add some kind of pattern around the circle. Tell students: “You can add the pattern by drawing, using stickers or colored tape, repeat a word or number, use other collage materials etc.”
- When the time is up, students pass their papers to their right again and add another pattern to the next paper they receive.
- The mandalas are done after approximately 4 rounds.
- Then, have each student come up one at a time and contribute their mandala to a full class mandala. (Yhis can be done by adding it to a grid or onto a board.)
- 반사: Ask the students the following reflection questions.
- Was it relaxing to repeat a pattern?
- How did you choose your material/pattern?
- How was it to share your work with the students in your group?
- Did you expect the mandalas to come out like this?
Show pictures of different mandalas, and ask students to describe them. Ask: “How are they similar? How are they different?”
Use the concepts you discussed in class to connect to the next activity.
Students need to be sitting where they can have a surface on which to draw, and where it is easy to pass their artwork around. Ideally, they should be at large tables, or in a circle at their desks.
- Advance examples/visuals to show the students.
- Square papers and decorating materials, pens, pencils, etc.
- Model with other TA and Classroom Professionals.
- Try using different materials to create the mandalas.
- Offer students choices for what kinds of materials they’d like to use.
- Mandalas can be made into collage, earth-work (if you are outside), or digital art.
- Use visual timer or music while students are working on their art.
- Give students plenty of warning for when they need to finish and be ready to pass.
- This could be done in small groups if a whole-class experience is too overwhelming.
